Admiral Dryer: 5 cycle 3 temperature electric

Admiral Dryer: 5 cycle 3 temperature electric unit purchased at local Home Depot "off the floor".
Unit won't dry properly. It takes 3 - 4 cycles to dry clothes. That is in combination with lessening the wash load.

Moved into new home, clean lint trap and line moving to outside of home.

What needs to happen?

Thanks.

    Is the problem on AUTO dry or TIMED dry or both? If on AUTO do a 45 minute TIMED dry and see what happens.

Unplug Dryer
Remove back (many screws)
Clean lint from interior & Vent Chute
check for breakage & parts on dryer floor
check for burn damage (wires burned off or char)
if no burn or char:
could be the "Dryer Coil" itself broke or
a "Snap Disc" usually mounted on the coil housing.
Very Serious!!!! Replace only!!!! Do not ever bypass!!!!
Stay clear of dryer for test start
Be ready to shut it down fast in case of problems
Always replace back & vent chute
Good luck,
Vinnie

    Also check your washer to make sure it is spinning out clothes properly.

    If they are heavy & dripping wet, it could be a washer problem.

    Good Luck,

I would like the operating manual for home tek steam cleaner


HI...........................


Couldn't see a manual on their web page, but you can try emailing them http://www.hometekinternational.co.uk/contact.htm


Home-tek Steam Mop Instructions

The Home-tek steam mop is designed for use on tile, vinyl and wood laminate flooring. This type of mop works a bit differently than your regular cleaning mop, as it uses steam to safely sanitize your hard flooring surfaces while removing stuck-on buildup.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions Things You'll Need

  • Water
  • Micro-fiber pad
    • 1 Open the cap of the water reservoir. This is located at the base of the unit, at the top of the reservoir, and twist it off.
    • 2 Pour tap water into the unit until you meet the fill line; water temperature makes no difference.
    • 3 Make sure a micro-fiber pad is attached to the bottom of the unit. This will be included with your purchase, and you may need to replace the pads over time if they wear or become heavily soiled. Replacements can be purchased from the manufacturer. If you need to attach the pad to the steam-cleaning unit, position the shape of the pad so it matches the base of the unit and snap into place on all four corners.
    • 4 Turn on the power switch with your foot. The switch is located at the bottom back side of the unit.
    • 5 Push the steam mop over the hard floor surface, pushing the steam trigger as needed at the top of the handle. Continue until your floor is cleaned to your liking.



GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello my dryer is only 3 years old. Last night it stopped drying. The drum will turn and the light comes on. It is an electric dryer. What might be the problem. Thanks.


Have you tried a different cycle? The thermostat that controls heat has failed. There are more than one for the different heat settings. Try a different setting, then go from there.

Refrigerator problem


I have a Magic Chef 3.6 cu. ft. Model#mcbr3605 thats 3 years old and has stopped working. When I plug it in you hear it start then you hear a "click" and it turns off. If you leave it plugged in the compressor gets hot. Can this be fixed or is it trash ? Thanks in advance.
